The Physician Practice Improvement Program (PPIP) requires all physicians, regardless of specialty, to complete three improvement activities, one of which must be practice driven, at least once in a five-year cycle.

Practice-driven quality improvement involves the use of data to identify opportunities for improvement in your medical practice. Fortunately, any physician who has recently prescribed opioids, benzodiazepine/Z-drugs or antibiotics has a data source available at their fingertips: MD Snapshot-Prescribing!

MD Snapshot-Prescribing contains personalized prescribing data and is updated quarterly in the Analytics section of your CPSA Portal—log in to take a look!

Our latest Prescribing Companion contains examples of how to meet the requirements of a practice-driven PPIP activity: using your prescribing data for practice reflection, then identifying opportunities for review and documenting an action plan.

Find out more about using MD Snapshot-Prescribing as the data source for a PPIP activity.
